I have just finished reading Johan Stenebo´s revealing book about the inside of IKEA. He noticed that the staff seem to be very reluctant to respond to new ideas verbally. Instead they say something like :Hmmm is that so or is that what you think. After a while, maybe a few days they have melted the suggestion internally and come up with an answer, perhaps several days later.
The author indicates that Ingvar Kamprad responds to suggestions the same way, which indicates that this behaviour is a part of the IKEA way of moving the frontiers in a profitable way.
I definetely recommend reading Johan Stenebo´s book about the world´s richest man. So my final word would be: Being a slow thinker and responder might be profitable in the long run. Uno Lingmark
